I think that Lovie will end up as a HC next year. Maybe with the Bills.

I think the value in any coach goes to the growth of the talent under him...have any of our drafted LB's looked like studs recently?

What about Butler? He is still around despite being offered jobs. I reckon he will be our DC in years too come

The D is an oak, on top of a rock and encased in carbonite; and it's because of LeBeau.
THIS X A BILLION. THANK YOU.
DEFENSE DID IT'S PART, and MORE THAN ENOUGH TO CONTEND.
Offensive personnel and ST wasted the D's efforts. Lebeau and his D coaches did a fantastic job coaching up the line and the secondary after it was getting burnt early on. It adjusted, and we turned the ship around. It got its outsides exposed, it adjusted enough to turn it around again - the other men outside of those 11 let the team down in a big, big way. No one, and I repeat no one could get these guys to do what they do, and to re-adjust and commit accordingly. Regardless of turnovers for the whole season - they were starting to come towards the end and we were seeing Troy become Troy. It is on the offensive personnel and the ST to step up to the plate for once already.

EDIT: Also, it is a testament to Tomlin and the rest of the organization that the defense hasn't all out rebelled against the offense and threw them under the bus since XLIII. 4 years of ineptness on that side if you ask me. Flashes - yes, but nothing consistent. We at least need clutchness from our O in the 4th if we are going to get #7 - and if you ask me, they need to figure out how they are going to score more, not just put everything on Ben's shoulders - he just can't do it consistently enough to pull the O's weight. He does need help, regardless of how great some of his performances have been.

Not sure what Lovie Smith's thoughts are on a 3-4 defense. Steelers convert to a 4-3 cover 2 defense......??? I guess its not out of the question.

Why are people so anxious to blow up the only thing that has worked on this team in six season? Everything else is broken. I used to work for a company that lived by the "if it aint broke break it" philosophy. They guy who wrote that drivel laughed at the misfortune of anyone moronic enough to buy into that all the way to the bank, but it was a con job. That company had glaring problems all over the place, but were too busy destroying what worked to even care about what was severely broken. Some of you people would have fit right in there.

Because it's that time of the year when cabin fever starts setting in and they have nothing better to do. It's becoming sacrilegious around here.

Lovie Smith, and Mike Tomlin both ran a version of the 43 Cover-2. Smith would be a good fit if the Steelers were looking for a DC.
